7th Grade Team - Language Arts Teacher
Jennifer Berry grew up in the Roaring Fork Valley. She attended Basalt schools from Kindergarten through getting her high school diploma from Basalt High. She then ventured out to Kansas City, MO where she got her degree from Avila University. While at Avila, she also had the opportunity to play on the softball team in its developing years. When she graduated, she came back to the valley and landed her first teaching job at Basalt Middle School teaching fifth grade! She transferred to CMS after seven years to run the after school program but the classroom kept calling. She stepped back into the classroom at CMS teaching Social Studies for many years. Another opportunity knocked on her door and she began a new journey teaching English Language Arts for the last six years. She has been teaching in the valley and for this district going on 23 years.
